This book is meant for M. Phil and Ph. D. research students, research guides, writers of research papers or research articles, teachers, scholars of literature and literary criticism, students of linguistics and all those who wish to know more about research in literature and languages.

Being Indo-Centric, rather than Euro-Centric, it discusses the basic questions of research, such as: How to select a topic? How to prepare the initial synopsis? How to prepare the detailed outline of the thesis or the paper? How to develop the argument or the point of view? How to cite references? How to prepare a bibliography and the final synopsis? And how to face the Viva? 

It discusses fundamental questions like what is to be searched in literature and languages and why.

It is clear in views, highly informative in its content, lucid and enjoyable in its style and a recent statement on the subject concerning globalisation and national development.

For foreign readers, this book provides an Indian perspective of literature and research in literature and languages with reference to the concept of ‘world literature’ in the process of globalisation of human life.
